Yesterday coming home from Eastern Creek my Road King® slipped into limp home mode twice.  The first time while accelerating past a semi-trailer on the F3, not much fun losing power in a 110kph speed limited area while there's a semi on your left!  Frighteningly I also had to pull across an exit off the freeway and was very

Once a year or so I like to go to an Advanced Rider Training Course, for the last couple of years I've done the Stay Upright Advance II Cornering and Braking Course.  It's really an instructor led track day and excellent for pushing the limits safely and brushing up on skills that

Tomorrow is the day we hit Eastern Creek again and so we arrived at the track nice and fresh we decided to head to the Chifley Hotel next to the track for the night.  I was heading to the Course with a mate DW who has a lovely BMW 1200 who was itching to get it going fast, last time he was at Eastern Creek he was on a 400cc Honda and his P's.

The trip home from Albury up the Hume Hwy is a route I've travelled at least three times in the last 12 months on my 2009 Harley-Davidson® Road King® and the 700ks or so doesn't even rate on the daunting scale any more.  Heffy and I took our time getting out the door, thankfully the pelting rain of yesterday had

Thankfully racehorses don't seem to train on Sunday and given a couple of big days along with a touch of sleep deprivation I managed a 5am emergence from the tent of doom.  Like yesterday, there was no-one to be seen, so it was time to have a long, dark shower and get ready for the Rally activities for the first half of the day.

At 4.10am this morning I was startled by some serious thudding noises and recall thinking WTFace? Realising I was in a paddock next to the Racing Track at Mornington I soon worked out that horse training started very early, given the sun wasn't supposed to come up until 7am or so.  As an early riser generally, and being forced to think

After a good night's sleep in Eden an 8.30am start was in order for the final part of our journey to the 2011 Victorian State HOG Rally in Mornington.  It was the first time I'd had the opportunity to travel south of Eden and I was looking forward to seeing what was about.

Sadly though, the rain made it difficult to see anything

My mate Heffy (formerly known ad JP and soon to be known as Rideby, explanation later) and I were heading south today on the first part of our journey to the Victorian State HOG Rally in Mornington Victoria.  This time rather than bolting straight down the boring old Hume Highway we decided to go via the south coast where we were meeting

I left home this morning on my Harley-Davidson® Road King® to go to the local Harley-Davidson Dealer's for the new members ride with the local HOG Chapter.  There was cause to wonder how many of our Chapter hard core members might be willing to take on the soaring, already high 30's temperatures of the day.

Today was the local HOG® Chapters' first official ride for the year, a mystery ride. Heffy, formerly known as JP, his new bide Kritty and my almost now ever present pillion Zanderhar(d) planned to go. With a phone call to the Road Captain my mate Dave was also organised to join us for the day on his BMWeull. Dave has been thinking
